Press Release from Eden FX
Hollywood,CA, June 7, 2010 – Eden FX, currently celebrating its 10th Anniversary Year, has provided digital effects to two high profile network TV series finales, and to two network series season finales. These shows were “Chuck,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “Fringe,” and “FlashForward.” John Gross, Eden FX President, made the announcement.
For the season finale of “Chuck,” which aired May 24th on NBC, Eden FX created digital effects depicting the “blowing up” of the Buy More store in which the Chuck character is employed. This entailed incorporating live action footage of the store’s interior to which were added digital explosions, smoke and fire effects. Eden FX digitally blew out the windows of the store, and depicted the huge sign on the exterior of the store slowly crashing to the ground.
